Re: Don't show us your hook

Okay, I reviewed the stock FB system. Looks to me you are essentially not using the ball component of the system. Why did you remove the black caps on the manual untwist piece? Was it because you ditched the PU tubing? Also, why mod the safety line connection ring? What is wrong with the stock ss ri...

You could use the new Dakine Option spreader bar, looks sweet and as the name suggests it has options.

Re: Core xr5?

Does it look all that different from XR 4? Very serious looking kite, kinda like a ME-109!
